    Thank you for all the great Youtube videos, and this tutorial! Everything was very clear and easy to follow. I've read most of my paper manual, but usually learn faster and memorize things better from watching videos. I'm looking forward to more chapters of the video manual. Peace! Just a heads up about the 1.1 update. Question 6 of 8 has a typo. It should be "two", instead of "to". The Daydream Sound Replied: Thanks!! We've made the corrections! Much appreciated!!!

    I’ve had my ASR for a few years now with the manual. I haven’t touched it much, but this video makes me glad that I bought it.

    I've owned my ASR-88 for over 20 years and between this manual and your youtube videos, you really opened up a whole side of this machine that I never knew about. Great job man! If there's one thing I would say, keep the camera on the screen for the beginners. I have no problem following you when you have the wide angle view because of my experience with the ASR, but a beginner may have trouble with whats on the ASR screen when you are jumping thru pages and stuff. Can't wait for the next update!
